Donating plasma is a very safe procedure with minimal or no side effects.
On your first visit, the whole process, including a physical exam and the plasma donation, usually takes about two hours. On subsequent visits, you can anticipate spending approximately an hour and a half in the center.
Plasma is manufactured into a wide variety of life-saving products that benefit thousands of people everyday.
